Okla. Baptist star signs contract with German team

SHAWNEE — An Oklahoma Baptist basketball player who was named NAIA player of the year has signed a professional contract with a German team.

OBU officials said Monday that Emmanuel Wilson will join SSV Lok Bernau.

The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 17.3 points per game and led the Bison to the NAIA finals during his senior season. He also was part of the 2010 NAIA championship team.

Wilson earned Sooner Athletic Conference and NAIA Player of the Year honors in 2012, and played for the Bison for four years.

The coach of the German team, Thomas Schonhoff, says officials were looking for a good shooter who could lead the team on offense and be a danger from the outside. Schonhoff says Wilson fit that profile.
